Maui Made Hawaiian Flash Cards
These made on Maui Flash Cards introduce a fun and simple way to learn the basics of the Hawaiian Language through creatively designed cards. The Keiki Cards are decks of learning Flash Cards with vibrant illustrations painted by beloved local Maui artist Melissa Bruck. Each card depicts an Hawaiian word with the English translation and a hand painted image, helping your child learn through color, art and word association.
Wendy Walker is a traveling Maui mama who has volunteered and worked with families and children in over 50 countries across the globe and is the creator of the Keiki Cards. These flash cards are easy to use, with an information glossary and pronunciation card included, and fun for the whole family. They are awesome for any keiki growing up on Maui or a great way to share and teach ALOHA with family members on the mainland. “I plan to do many other language decks and work with local artists of each region to help promote their art as well. We can all help one another share language and culture and connect with one another through flash card fun. The hope is to bring everyone together through language and local art, while keeping local cultures alive.”
You can find your Keiki Cards at Mana Foods, Droplets., Kuau Mart, Ma’alea Harbor, The Maui Ocean Center, Nectar Paia, Zen Hale Makawao, the Swap Meat or purchase online at www.keikicards.com
